The latest version of DJ-Classifieds, Joomla classified ads extension brings many new features, fixes, and improvements.
We have extended the duration options. You can set access to the duration of the chosen user group.
Now you can easily create multiple menu items linking to the ads submission forms with the predefined category.
We've added the new parameter "Default category" to the "Add item" menu settings. You can define it in the "Params tab" and set the default category for the item.
We've updated the "uploader configuration" settings. You can define the server path for storing images temporarily, instead of using the default path only.
A new option for custom fields was added. This can be useful when a user adds a lot of custom fields, has a lot of categories, and wants to add another and change its order. Instead of setting it in each category, he can use the new button and apply the order of the fields to all categories automatically.
The "Items module" settings were updated. Now you choose "Recently viewed ads" option for DJ-Classifieds items ordering. This will allow displaying recently viewed ads in the order in which they were viewed (most recent first).
For each of the offered/defined subscription plans, you can display information on the front page on the availability of unlimited plans. Until now, it was only possible to provide a specific number of ads available. The unlimited option must be defined in the backend by adding the "-1" value in the "Adverts in plan" field.
Now during adding the new Menu item type for subscription plans you can select which subscription plans should be displayed.
If you don't see this new param, please reinstall the Subscription Plans plugin.
The "Map & Locations Settings" in DJ-Classifieds options contain a new button: Geolocation. It can be enabled or disabled. You can choose whether you want to use the map's provider API to generate coordinates based on the provider region/address/postcode during the ad's saving.
The "Category Tree module" was updated. It contains the new parameter: "Follow category".
You can enable and show subcategories of the category that is currently browsed (works for category page or search results).
This new feature works for the payments tab in the DJ-Classifieds control panel. You can now additionally filter Advert-type payments by their sub-type (Promotions, Category, Duration).
The feature works on the front page when an unlogged user on the page (guest) clicks the "contact this advertiser" icon. As a result, a popup window appears informing that you must log in and displaying "Ok / cancel" options. Selecting "ok" redirects the user to the login page.
The DJ-Classifieds 3.7.9 release brings also the update for DJ-Classifieds Offers App. This App was updated to 3.7.9 version as well. Read more about the update here: Offers App for DJ-Classifieds updated to 3.7.9 version
